[OAI-implementers] Help Requested for OAI Data Provider Registration

I've no idea who's responsible for the OAI Data Provider registry [1]. I
wondered if anybody here knew anything about it.

I have tried to register our OAI service at


using the registration page [2] and it validated and said a confirmation
mail would be sent to the server admin. (This was already last Friday.)
Unfortunately the server admin email we chose is our customer services
address (feedback at nature.com) and so far they have not been able to locate
any email from the registration process.

I have tried mailing direct to the contact address
openarchives at openarchives.org but have got no reply.

Any info on how to complete the registration process would be very helpful
as we'd like to get our service publicly registered.
